For Tahlequah and Her Dearly Departed

The love I possess only for you, So strong, so unattainable--- Even in life it heralds death; But even in death, its heart still beats. For seventeen days I have held you, And seventeen times seventeen more I would carry you across oceans: A thousand miles to ferry your soul, Like Charon, to the next... Continue Reading →



Why don't you come home and remind me I'm sick again? I really can't get enough of it! Describe to me how I'm crazy, lazy, and always too stressed, As if I haven't spent my entire life inside this backwards mind. Does my diagnosis displease you? Let me get a second opinion real quick!
